The facilities guys were marvellous.
Big thanks to all the above for the back-breaking work put in, delivered with smiles and a refreshing non-stop can-do attitude, they swept away any potential nightmare logistics for the event.
What a good job your guys have done over the past few weeks. They have worked really well and have liaised with the team throughout. It is a refreshing change to have contractors who are so aware of their environment.
Thanks for the excellent service.
As holders of the Small Construction Projects Agreement (SCPA), we regularly undertake general building maintenance, electrical mechanical works and civil engineering projects. In November 2011, we were successful in winning the tender to build a Corrosion Chamber at Millbrook Proving Ground.
The brief was to erect an insulated chamber to test the effects of heat and moisture on vehicles. The Chamber had to be able to withstand heat of up to 50°C and 98% humidity. Working directly with the Consultant, we were responsible for sourcing all materials, overseeing all groundworks, steelwork, building of the specialist chamber, mechanical plants and all electrical and fire alarm installations.
In keeping with their commitment to the environment, the Chamber was designed and built to house a fully recycled water system, with each vehicle being tested making use of the system, so nothing goes to waste. And it takes just 12 minutes to test a vehicle.
From start to finish, the Chamber was actually completed over a twelve week period - fast work indeed!
